[openSUSE 11.2] Wireless connection problems

Just installed opensuse 11.2, and my internet connection is failing. I'm trying to connect through my linksys router. I can communicate with my router. It seems to connect fine, "You are now connected to linksys-erl" or whatever it says.

Here's a screenshot:

Firefox just brings up a "cannot find server" message.

Step 1) 'ping'
Step 2) If ping returns then 'route'

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 2 0 0 wlan0
link-local * U 1000 0 0 wlan0
default router UG 0 0 0 wlan0

Step 3) 'ping'
step 4) If ping returns then 'ping' <--
Step 5) If ping returns then you have connectivity to the internet.
Step 6) 'ping'
Step 7) If ping fails then 'cat /etc/resolve.conf'

# Generated by NetworkManager

Step 7) If command returns server(s) then 'dig @<one of the ip address you found above>'

;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 55833
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 3, AUTHORITY: 13, ADDITIONAL: 0

; IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION: 300 IN A 300 IN A 300 IN A

Step 8) If this fails find a new DNS server to use.
